Yeah. This is sad. She had a stroke earlier this year so all of us in the burlesque community knew it was only a matter of time. That's why there was going to be a nation-wide "Dixie Evans Week" with many, many shows. Those shows are still going on, but it will be less of a celebration and more of a memorial.

I was lucky enough to interview her many years ago. I might have to find that. You should hear her tell her stories of being the "Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque." She even started doing that MM-whisper voice thing. (And as a side note, it's almost uncanny how Dixie died so close to MM's death date.)

She was one of the last great burlesque queens.
